FIFA gives ‘Red Card’ to Palestinian campaign of hate; rejects efforts to ban Israel from world football

The Israeli-Jewish Congress (IJC) was proud to have led the effort, together with other pro-Israel allies to thwart this campaign, by launching a global social media effort, with IJC President Vladimir Sloutsker also writing to the FIFA President and authorities, urging them to give this campaign of hate a ‘Red Card’ (see more here: http://bit.ly/2zIyNIy)
